Shoutout to our members who kicked 2018 off in a BIG way with some PRs! You guys are awesome!

Today's Fat Loss workout includes a lot of Abmat Situps! Try these tips in today's workout to help you bust out a few more reps: 1. Your hips should be OPEN during the entire movement. We are working our abs, not our hip flexors! 2. Keep your lower back on the pad at the bottom of the movement (no arching your back!) 3. Drive your lower back into the pad to engage your abs as much as possible during the movement.
Students of UMaine: Meet senior Abigail Bennett of Oxford, Maine I’m fascinated by the increasing complexity of the stock market and the power concentrated in the hands of corporate owners. I study financial economics to understand it better; my Honors thesis is on the difference in performance between passively owned and actively owned companies. I love being co-president of UMaine's student-run investment club and secretary of the College Republican National Committee, which have positively shaped my college experience and life. I blog about personal finance and hike, ski, run and hang out with my amazing family. The No. 1 reason I love UMaine is the incredible network we’ll be part of for the rest of our lives. #studentsofumaine #umaine #goumaine @abbyjobennett
CrossFit isn't what you see on TV. It's not chiseled men and women squatting hundreds of pounds and repping out legless rope climbs like it's nothing. CrossFit is an elderly woman who can walk without her cane. It's the dad who can keep up while playing with his kids again. It's the diabetic who no longer needs medication to manage their symptoms. We all give it everything we've got in the gym, and because of that, we all win.
Had a decent cardio day today just some finishing touches this week before I head back to school and start a new program. A simulated wrestling match on the treadmill for 7 minutes raising the incline and speed by .5 ever minute then 3 miles of intervals on the elliptical
How did you spend your winter break? Probably not the same way that senior zoology major Caroline Spangenberg and other UMaine students spent their break. She took a winter-term course at MDI Biological Laboratory called Molecular Mechanisms of Human Disease studying the immune systems of zebrafish. Thanks @btero for the photo. #umaine #goumaine @umainephotographyclub #mdibl
We are learning some really amazing things here at MDIBL! Today, we extracted DNA from patient sputum samples and are in the process of sequencing it overnight. Yesterday, we worked with zebra fish and CFTR gene that plays an important role in causing cystic fibrosis disease. It really makes me excited for the future and all the advancements coming to medicine and healthcare in general! Oh, and exploring in between is fun too ❄️
Lots of burnouts to prep for this semester of Pink Gloves!
475# for my max rep on sumo, some quick progress on this program nice to see it working
We know we have some new faces following us, so allow us to introduce ourselves: Crossfit Black Bear was founded in 2012 as a non-profit CrossFit affiliate at the University of Maine. Working with the University we were able to offer free classes to full time University students and community members active at the Recreation Center. We were founded with the mission to make exceptional programming and coaching accessible to the every University student and community member. In Summer 2016, CrossFit Black Bear became the first non-profit CrossFit affiliate in Maine to become a commercial affiliate. This was only possible with the support of our members who made CrossFit Black Bear a successful program at the University. We are now located in the Old Town Plaza (between the Hannaford and YMCA). Only 5 minutes from the University of Maine at Orono campus, and 6.5 miles from Bangor off I-95 N. Stop by and visit us sometime!
Good ole late night pump. Nothing like a chest and tri day to end off the week.
@rynovail 700lb Deadlift PR!! 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻 It's been long awaited but felt exactly as I imagined. Can't explain how much this number has bothered me.

TGI-#FitFriday , Black Bears! We hope you have a great weekend and that you come back Monday well-rested and ready to get back to work. For those of you looking for a little homework over the weekend, try out this little AMRAP, which you should be able to do anywhere that has enough floor space. Let us know how it goes if you decide to try it out!
Love getting in a good lift with family and friends nothing like it
I got my hoodie from @greeksbyneon after they flew to the moon and back to find this solid black hoodie, and I love it!! It’s the perfect way to show off how BANANAS I am about @tbsdeltanu 🍌😍👯♀️ I’ll be back in April, Sisters!!
Starting off 2018 grateful for all of my accomplishments from 2017. As well as excited that I've already received 2 raises in 2018! 2017 was definitely my year but why can't 2018 be as well?
Least favorite day of the week is cardio. Interval training on an elliptical today with some variations of how I ran it
GE Take. Congratulations, Brian Gaine! The local newspaper depicts Brian as a “Standout” for Don Bosco Prep & the University of Maine @blackbearsfb - after All, he did letter for 4 years & was a Captain in 1995. But 🛑 there. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Brian Gaine was a hard working, big athletic kid from Pearl River, NY that used to long snap with me in the Healthstar parking lot in 1996. He was an NFL long shot as a TE/Long snapper & didn’t make it as a player. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Brian caught a break from local legend, Bill Parcells who hired him in personnel for the @nyjets and he followed Coach Parcells to the Cowboys @dallascowboys & the Dolphins @miamidolphins because he proved to him he was a great mind in finding NFL talent - “a Standout.” - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Brian Gaine has Worked his Butt Off & has finally been hired as the General Manager for the Texans @houstontexans “EARNED.” - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - People READ “Standout” and assume some folks are just Born different. Hard Work - Pays Off! #goodenergy #itspersonal #ge #healthstar #dbp #texans #nfl #hardwork #trainlikeapro #pro #umaine #youcan #winter18 #geprogramsince2003

3x5 dips with 75 pounds plus the rope. My body got used to the 75 so since I don't have a weight belt I had to use the rope for extra weight

Day 3 of rapid research week here at Vemi. We have 4 groups, each assigned a different task and today we ran our experiments. In order of appearance: (spatial language) participants listened to verbal descriptions (task 1) and were given a photo (task 2) of the placement of objects on a table, they then completed a separate task, and then went to place the objects on the table in the order they were told or shown; (stress response) participants were placed in a virtual setting where they were given a number recognition task, at points throughout the task jump-scares were initiated to increase heart rate and see how the participants reacted when stressed; (distance perception) participants were placed in both a virtual and real life setting where they had to determine the distance the front of a box was from them while wearing a weighted backpack to determine if weight plays a factor in perception; (vibration and navigation) participants were placed in a virtual setting where they had to navigate through a dark hallway without vision using vibration and auditory cues. #virtualreality #rapidresearchweek #vemilab #vemi #umaine #nonprofit #research #mainebusiness
